I have been using taz .1% for almost 3 months after using ram.04% and differin prior to that. Both the differin and RAM worked but not well enough. At this point using the Taz has been really frustrating for me. Right now my skin has a lot of little bumps and redness. Prior to this I had mild to moderate acne with very oily skin and clogged pores. I have also added mandellic acid for peely skin but i recently stopped because i think it's too irritating. anyway, has anyone taken longer then 3 months to be clear? I'm not sure if I should just give it up or give it longer. I was fairly clear previously, so this new break out is frustrating-i'm still getting surfacing of clogged pores. It's so great to be able to read other people's experiences-it helps to not feel so alone! I hope everyone is having a good day!

The Dr. wouldn't give me the meds I researched. I wanted Spiro, Taz, Clindamycin and Yasmin. She said she didn't feel comfy giving me all of those and the Spiro would build up potassium. So left with Yas and Taz .1%. I'll stick with this until the Derm appointment in February. That should give my skin plenty of time to do it's thing. If not then I hope the Derm will skip the Spiro and we can just do a course of Tane. If of course my body is ready for it.
So Day 1: Slight tightening, slight drying of nostrils and slightly more peeling than on Retin A Micro .1%.
Also experimenting with Aleve. Starting soon.

It super speeds up the shedding of your skin, then in the morning you just rub it off with warm water and
People that had a burning sensation..........Did you moisturize BEFORE you put it on?
I looked on the website and that's what it had on the directions, before I put it on with nothing else and it
made my skin all itchy and red so I stopped..........try it with moisturizer before applying it

Today I used the SA cleanser mid-day to scrub my face a bit. And my forehead looked VERY GOOD! The skin tightened up and the only pores that stood out were the troubled ones...instead of every single pore! I was able to target the trouble ones with the extractor and everything came out with ease! Maybe I have been too harsh with my skin over the years. SA, BP, AB, RA, DIFFERIN, GA...all used randomly (except the AB=tetracycline).
I am worried about adding in the YASMIN. I may wait a month and start it in January just to give the taz some time to work. But if the Yasmin acts ONLY like the Spiro portion of it I wanted, then great! But I am not ready for it.
Think I should just go for it? Or wait out the month since the Taz seems to be doing a good job?

That doesn't make sense at all. Drinking a large glass of water will cure your depression from Tazorac?
I like to see some scientific papers on this.

Still dry and flaky, but I am used to that. I have added the SA back into the routine during showers. But still use the Cetaphil wash at night. I also stopped using the Cetaphil lotion and use the SA lotion after washing in the AM.
Time...more time. I dream of the same smooth skin that I have heard others speak of on these board.
